SimplyCook Review and Goan Fish Curry

Simply Cook - Goan Fish Curry

Ever fancied restaurant quality meals in your own home? Well SimplyCook have come up with a new concept for a monthly subscription service which provides a box of 4 recipe kits which will have you cooking up splendid dishes from around the world in around 20 minutes. All the ingredients are natural, being hand picked and blended by their chefs. SimplyCook invited me to try out the service for myself and after perusing all 50 of their delicious looking recipes on-line, I was very much looking forward to my delivery. Unlike other recipe kits, you provide the main ingredients and the kit contains 3 pots that provide all the flavours and spices needed.

The contents of 1 SimplyCook box with 4 recipe kits.

I have a particular penchant for fish curry so was very pleased to find the Goan Fish Curry kit in my box (once your subscription gets going you can choose your kits after your initial box choice). The other recipe kits I received were: Cajun Chicken with Red Pepper Sweet Potato Mash, Malay Laksa and Sri Lankan Duck Curry which all sound delicious. I think we often need a push to cook with ingredients we don’t usually buy so for me the duck will make a nice change!

Goan Fish Curry recipe kit – one of 50 in the Simply Cook range.

So back to the Goan Fish Curry which was so quick and simple to make it was almost like painting by numbers. I really believe that even a complete novice would achieve great results with these recipes. The SimplyCook recipe cards are very helpful as each one contains a handy hint, tells you what ingredients you need to buy, what you’ll need from your cupboard and there’s even a tear off shopping list at the top! The Goan Fish Curry, as you will see from the recipe below, was completely fuss free and totally delicious. It could easily have served 3 or perhaps 4 if I’d added some more fish. The handy tip tor this recipe said I could also have used prawns or added butternut squash. The depths of flavour were just like those you’d get in a restaurant and I loved the crunch from the whole mustard seeds. Both hubby and I really enjoyed this curry!

So apart from the SimplyCook recipes being super tasty and super quick to make I like that:

  • The box is delivered by post (within 2 days) so no waiting in for a courier, it just pops through your letter box.
  • There are no fresh ingredients so no pressure on you to cook the recipes immediately or potential for food waste should unforeseen circumstances arise.
  • You can buy ingredients at your leisure and benefit from special offers which is not an option with a full meal kit, so potential to save money.
  • The kits are good value for money as you are getting quality spices and recipe cards which are beautifully packaged.
  • There is no waste. How many times have you bought a jar of spice for a one off recipe and then never used it again?
  • Even after a long day at work you’re not going to be too tired to make these recipes as they are so straightforward and quick.
  • You can broaden you tastes by trying foods you might never have thought to eat before.
  • All the recipes on-line flag up known allergens.
  • A subscription would make a really thoughtful gift.

    I know it’s a bit naughty on the packing front, but I love these type of boxes. They get you to cook things you might not otherwise do. Love the pictures, that curry looks so inviting.

  14. Molly Kumar

    Great recipe, we love goan curry and is mostly cooked over weekends especially in winter times.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Molly:-)

  15. Donna

    This is such a great option for people that are looking for a bit of inspiration in the kitchen! The curry looks delicious, so creamy!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, yes lots of inspiration here;-)

  16. Razena | Tantalisemytastebuds.com

    The Goan curry looks very inviting, but I’d also like to know how the Malaysian laksa turns out 🙂

    1. Camilla

      When I next see some bargain asparagus I will give this recipe a go and let you know:-)

  17. Laura Hartley

    Mm this does look tasty!! I prefer fish to meat but for some reason I’ve never tried a fish curry myself!! Thanks for reminding me, I’ve got to try this out now!

    1. Camilla

      Yes, I’m the same and fish is wonderful in curry!

  18. Nayna Kanabar

    Your curry looks rich and creamy . Nothing beats a well cooked curry with delicious naan bread to mop it up with.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Nayna – this was Pershwari naan which I don’t think I’ve ever had before, which was lovely:-)

  19. Heather Haigh

    I had my first Goan curry recently and found it really nice, though on the fiery side. I love the sound of your recipe. I do think fish makes a lovely light curry.

    1. Camilla

      Not my recipe Heather, this is from Simply Cook and it wasn’t fiery at all so I think you’d like it:-)

  20. charlotte

    I worry about set meal subscription boxes as I am quite fussy.

    1. Camilla

      You can choose what you want and have a choice of 3 boxes on your first order.

  21. sally Akins

    This looks really fab! I’ve always been a bit put off food box subscription services, but this one looks a bit different and I’m quite impressed!

    1. Camilla

      Me too Sally, I have been left exhausted after spending 3 nights cooking from a full kit where the kit took nearly and hour to make and really fiddly! Simply Cook is completely different, quicker and cheaper.

  22. Rebecca Smith

    I’ve heard plenty of good things about Simply Cook – that goan curry looks amazing!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Rebecca, that’s good to know;-)

  23. Paul Wilson

    Looks a great idea for a curry – healthy too.

  24. Neli @ Delicious Meets Healthy

    This looks delicious and so flavorful!!! Love it!

  25. Sarah Bailey

    Ohh what an interesting sounding curry, I have to admit I do love one, I shall have to give this a whirl. x

  26. Jeanne M Horak-Druiff

    Oh wow Camilla – that looks AMAZING! We are huge curry fans in this house but don’t make fish curries nearly often enough – this sounds like the perfect easy weeknight solution 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Jeanne – I must get on and try the other recipe kits now:-)

  27. Rachel

    Now this curry sounds delicious and is right up my street x

  28. Leila Benhamida

    Sounds delicious with Coconut paste added to it.

  29. Kavey

    We enjoyed the Simply Cook kit we tried last year or maybe year before, some very good flavours, we thought.

    1. Camilla

      Glad to hear that Kavey:-)

  30. Claire

    Huibby LOVES fish curry but I’ve never cooked it for him as I have a bit of a fish phobia! I really should get a grip and give it a go! That kit looks like a great way to start!

    1. Camilla

      Well you can get skinned cod fillets which I used so all you have to do is chop up the fish into cubes! Do try the kit, so good;-)

  31. Joy @ Joy Love Food

    This curry sounds delicious, what a great service!

    1. Camilla

      It really was Joy and the service is great:-)

  32. tracey bowden

    I am rubbish with flavouring food so this would be great for me, I like that you buy the ingredients so there is no rush as to when you actually make the meal

    1. Camilla

      Yes that’s what I like too and the fact that I can pick the best ingredients at a price that suits me:-)

  33. Jenny

    I love subscription boxes, this one sounds lots of fun.

    1. Camilla

      This one is particularly good;-)

  34. Ickle Pickle

    I love the sound of this – I am useless with flavours, seasoning etc. Thank you for sharing. Kaz x

    1. Camilla

      The kits would be perfect for you then Kaz:-)

  35. Ana De- Jesus

    I love trying out new dishes from cultures outside of Europe.

    1. Camilla

      Same here;-)

  36. Food Glorious Food

    I love this idea and your Goan Fish Curry looks amazing

    1. Camilla

      It is a great idea and thank you:-)

  37. Natasha Mairs

    This sounds really nice, but without the fish, as I am a vegetation.

  38. Stella

    Food looks good, never heard of simply food until now.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you:-)

  39. Tori Gabriel

    Mmmm, this looks lovely. I like the sound of this subscription as it will introduce me to foods I wouldn’t normally eat.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Tori, yes that’s the beauty of these kits:-)

  40. Sarah Maison Cupcake

    This looks delicious Camilla, I’d love to try it!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sarah, I’m sure you’d love it:-)

    This looks so delicious Camilla. I love meal delivery services like this for when you are lacking a bit of cooking inspiration.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Dannii:-)
